Baked Penne with Italian Sausage

I found this recipe in my email over the weekend from allrecipes.com. I subscribe to a lot of food recipe sites to get inspiration on noodle recipes to make at home and this one caught my eye because it’s such a classic dish and I’m surprised I haven’t put a dish like this on my site yet. This recipe got really good reviews on allrecipes.com and as one reviewer put it, “This is a hearty, filling meal that’s full of flavor!”

This meal is very easy to make and takes about 50-60 minutes to make from start to finish. It serves 6.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (12 ounce) package dry penne pasta
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 pound mild Italian sausage
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with garlic
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Heat oil in a large, deep skillet. Place sausage and onion in the skillet and cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain excess fat. Pour in wine, and cook for 1 minute, stirring, to deglaze the pan. Stir in tomato sauce, diced tomatoes and tomato paste. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Toss with cooked pasta, and place in a 9×13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle top with mozzarella.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
